For instance, a few years ago, a 75,000-strong botnet comprised of embedded devices - consumer broadband routers, in that instance - was found to be launching DDoS attacks. We routinely see IoT botnets comprised of webcams, DVRs, cable television set-top boxes, satellite set-top boxes, and more used to launch DDoS attacks.
